About vinegar : Traditional sushi dressing can be made by Japanese vinegar however apple cider vinegar can also be an alternative. ‘Sushi rice vinegar’ can be an option for those who require less preparation time which can be found via the supermarket in the Japanese food corner.

About topping : Instead of using rocket as your vegetable topping, you can select the vegetable of your choice such as cucumber, salad cress. The smoked salmon is replaceable with sashimi grade salmon in Japanese food shops. Seafood sticks and boiled shrimps are also a delicious way of serving this dish.
